ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), in collaboration with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), has carried out a successful raid against illegal activation of SIMs at a Franchisee of Mobile Company in Wah Cantt.
During the raid, digital equipment including laptops, PCs, mobile phones and SIM cards (both active and inactive) were confiscated.
A total of four suspects were arrested.
Earlier, the PTA had filed a complaint with the FIA after abnormal SIM sale pattern was observed at the sale channel.
It is pertinent to mention that the PTA has recently launched MBVS in December 2022 and the raid is part of its efforts to proactively control the attempts being made to bypass the new system.
It is testament to the PTA’s commitment and persistent efforts in curbing illegal issuance of SIMs.
